About Me

I have a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree and work in web design, graphics, and technical editing. I minored in music and play several instruments, including guitar. A fan of all things science fiction, my interests range from books and movies to music and games. I'm the founder of the Insecure Writer's Support Group and website, and a co-host of the A to Z Challenge from 2011-2015. I'm the author of Amazon Best Sellers CassaStar, CassaFire, CassaStorm, and Dragon of the Stars and I've contributed to numerous anthologies. I live in the Carolinas with my wife.
